CINCINNATI (AP) — Ohio's three largest cities all have hopes of landing a Democratic or Republican national convention in 2016.

Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati officials all figure that Ohio's importance as a presidential swing state will help their cause. All three say they have good facilities, hotel space and transportation links for hosting such large conventions.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1gZOwH9 ) reports that the capital of Columbus has gotten an early jump, and Cincinnati is a latecomer in the competition.

Columbus officials say Nationwide Arena could host the convention, with plenty of convention facilities and hotels nearby.

Ohio's Democratic Party and Republican Party leaders don't agree on much, but both say they'd like to see the state host their conventions.
